Gold price soars above $1,800‎

[August 10, 2011]  Mass die-offs resulting from human impact and the planetary response to the anthropogenic assault could occur by early 2016.  SYMBOLIC COUNTDOWN: 1,680 Days Left to the ‘Worst Day’ in Human History

  • Global. Gold price soared above $US1,800 (the immediate-delivery price climbed to $1,814.95 and December-delivery contract rose by 1.9 percent to $1,817.60 an ounce in Singapore this morning)‎, a new record high, exposing the insanity behind human abstractions.

  • Illinois, USA.  Carroll, Jo Daviess and Stephenson counties have been declared disaster areas following severe flash flooding that occurred on July 27.
    • “Flash floods throughout Northwest Illinois swept away roads, damaged bridges and inundated hundreds of homes,” said  Governor Pat Quinn.
    • At least four of our citizens lost their lives to the second ‘hundred year flood’ in as many years. The three inches we received in Pecatonica was a pittance compared to the 15 inches received in East Dubuque in 11 hours where 300 citizens had to be evacuated, many by boat. The flood gates were closed in Galena saving much, but significant damage still occurred. I arrived in Pearl City Thursday afternoon while the water was rising and I was the last vehicle to get out of town heading to Freeport as President Knoup closed the road.”
